For some analysts, such data on the export propensity of services are argued to be due to a misallocation of ‘goods production’ to the so-called service sector (Sayer and Walker 1992). This is not the case. Using this input/output data from Statistics Canada, which is one of the few data sources available on this issue, Stabler and Howe (1993: Tables 5 and 6) examine the value of the goods manufactured in service-producing industries and services generated in goods-producing industries. 8 per cent of total production by value was misallocated to the serviceproducing industries.

These twin trends of deindustrialization and tertiarization in the developed nations and the accompanying NIDL have prompted a major rethinking of the traditional view of services in both neo-classical economics and marxism as ‘unproductive’ and 18 DOES MANUFACTURING MATTER? ‘parasitical’. Here, therefore, the conventional categorization of manufacturing as ‘basic’ and services as ‘dependent’ activity will be critically evaluated and the relative importance of manufacturing and services as engines of growth will be assessed.

In part, such a characterization of consumer services is due to the narrow definition of the basic sector adopted in many studies. Because basic activities have been perceived as only those which export their products as opposed to generating external income by importing consumers, the result has been that although producer services have been incorporated, consumer services have not. However, given that consumer service industries which induce external income into an area fulfil the same function as export industries, in that both generate external income so as to allow the economy to grow, this conceptualization of the basic sector has been increasingly questioned (for example Farness 1989, Hefner 1990, Marshall and Wood 1995, Williams 1996a).
